"Zayn's baby's name is Calamity," one fan guessed, in reference to the album's lead single. Another fan, meanwhile, pointed to a different song title, track 11, named River Road. "TBH I think Zayn's daughter’s name is River or something close to it. If I'm right I WILL scream!"

A third, meanwhile, questioned the name of the boat featured in Zayn's Vibez music video – SS Malik – while a fourth joked about their intense scrutiny of the music, sharing a meme of someone trying to solve mathematical equations, and writing: "Me listening to Zayn’s new album trying to find any cryptic lyrics to what the kid is called."
